# 43 : Mamidikaya Kobbari Pachadi ~ Mongo-Coconut Chutney

This is yet another Pachadi recipe I am sharing today. The sour tingle of the mango blended with the flavors of coconut and the spiciness of the chilies makes up a lip smacking pachadi . Oh! if you drizzle it up with a little bit of Ghee you can never get enough of it. I grew up eating coconut pachadi as a kid. It was made very often at home and I didn't quite like it then. But now many years later just thought of this pachadi bring back wonderful memories. My mom in law shared a version of the same coconut pacandi pepped up with mango. Love it even more now.

  • 1 Raw Mango- cut into 1 inch pieces
